  • The two organisations see a connection between the Millennium Development Goals, the Non-Legally Binding Instrument and the Multi Year Program of Work for UNFF. The Non-Legally Binding Instrument and the Program of Work are important tools in reaching the Millennium Goals. The organisations also points on the important role of community and family forestry in forming policies and carrying out activities in order to reach the goals.

    GACF and IFFA want to be partners with the Intergovernmental organisations in forming and executing forest policies. The experience of the forestry people will contribute to better policies and activities. GACF and IFFA strongly points on priority areas in the further work of UNFF.
